Daily Fraction of Vegetation Cover - MSG

Abstract:
Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC) defines an important structural property of a plant canopy, which corresponds to the complement to unity of the gap fraction at nadir direction, accounting for the amount of vegetation distributed in a horizontal perspective. FVC is related with the partition between soil and vegetation contribution for emissivity and temperature. This property is necessary for describing land surface processes and surface parameterisation schemes used for climate and weather forecasting. Besides, the FVC is relevant for a wide range of Land Biosphere Applications such us agriculture and forestry, environmental management and land use, hydrology, natural hazards monitoring and management, vegetation-soil dynamics monitoring, drought conditions and fire scar extent.
